As others have pointed out Earth's magnetic field is weakening and becoming very irregular and will be for the next 1000 years or so before it flips. If they are going to mine a magnetic field the Sun, Venus, Titan, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune all have magnetic fields, many of which are stronger than our own. If one can utilize a magnetic field for energy, which very well be possible, I would hope they would use one of those others, perhaps Jupiter or Saturn.
